So it finally arrived, well actually it arrived pretty quickly but due to my apartments post boxes being tiny I had to go pick it up from the post office, which took a few days as I was busy shopping :) Well as you may know from my earlier post this is my first Glossybox, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I already knew what may be in my box after reading other lovely bloggers posts about this months – I was crossing my fingers for an Illamasqua eye liner but no such luck for me I’m afraid.
I adore the design of the box, and after I have emptied it I am now using it store my ‘go to’ nail varnishes in. So here we go this is what I got in my first box…
Yves Rocher France – So Elixir Purple – Eau de Parfum 5ml
I am not a big fan of this fragrance at all, it says this is described as a ‘intoxicating and magnetic smell’ I am not of this opinion. I am quite picky when it comes to fragrances and only love around 5 or 6 scents so I am quite hard to impress on the perfume front, I did not like this very much at all – It kind of reminded me of my grandma. My aunty did like the smell though so she is now the owner of this little sample (guess it was me being picky again)
A-Derma – Intensive Repair Lip Balm 15ml – £7.95
Essie Nail Polish – Sugar Daddy – 13.5 ml £7.99
Yet again another full sized product (wow) I have tried a few bits from the Sleek range but never a blusher, this one is quite a bright shade and I am very pale so I have not yet tried this one out (I am waiting for the right moment and plucking up the courage to be daring) The product seems quite good, I swatched this on the back of my hand and it stayed on for quite some time, so it seems quite impressive.
All in all I am quite impressed with my first Glossybox, and will be ordering May’s as soon as I can. In total (with p&p) it cost £12.95 and the products included came to £23.38, which isn’t the best I suppose but it has introduced me to some products which I wouldnt have neccesarily bought.
Did any of you lovelies get a Glossybox? What did you think of yours?
